SEV Biblia, Chapter 10:14 Â¶ El peso del oro que Salomón tenía de renta cada año, era seiscientos sesenta y seis talentos de oro;
Clarke's Bible Commentary - 1 Kings 10:14 Verse 14. The weight of gold-was six hundred threescore and six talents] This would amount in our money to ú4, 683, 675 12s. 8 1/2d. sterling.

Matthew Henry Commentary Verses 14-29 - Solomon increased his wealth. Silver was nothing accounted of. Such is the nature of worldly wealth, plenty of it makes it the less valuable much more should the enjoyment of spiritual riches lessen our esteem of all earthly possessions.

This wa he, who, having tasted all earthly enjoyments, wrote a book, to sho the vanity of all worldly things, the vexation of spirit that attend them, and the folly of setting our hearts upon them: and to recommen serious godliness, as that which will do unspeakably more to make u happy, that all the wealth and power he was master of; and, through the grace of God, it is within our reach __________________________________________________________________
